Dinkey Creek campground is a dream come true for people and their precious pooches who love local history, exploring never-ending forests, and doing the doggy paddle in some crystal clear waters! If you're looking for somewhere to lose yourself in the beauty of nature, then there's no better spot. Located within the stunning Sierra National Forest and surrounded by sparkling streams, magnificent mountains, and wide open spaces to traverse, Dinkey Creek is nothing short of paradise.
If you've got a hike-loving hound at the end of that leash or a mountain bike you've been waiting to take out for a spin, then you will love taking on the Dinkey Creek Trail! If you're hoping to cover more miles with your marvelous mutt, then you'll be happy to hear that all the paved paths in Sierra National Forest welcome leashed pups! Just remember to pack poop packaging wherever you head with your pooch and always bring extra water to help keep that hound hydrated!
While staying at Dinkey Creek, you simply have to pay a visit to Mckinley Grove. Unfortunately, your darling dog can't join you on this adventure, though. While there, you can cross the Dinkey Creek Truss Bridge which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, take a nature walk and spot some of the majestic wildlife found in the area or relax in the shaded picnic spots. The best part about this grove? The giant Sequoia trees, which are the largest trees in the world!
If you need to cool down after all that exploring, head to The Honeymoon Pool or The Slicks back at Dinkey Creek Campground to enjoy a swim in picture-perfect pools that have been carved out of granite. While your pup doesn't have free reign to join you in all the swimming spots in the camp, head to Shaver Lake, and you've got plenty of room for doggy diving!
Dinkey Creek is a popular fishing spot also, and many visitors enjoy taking a relaxing afternoon on the water before heading back to their shaded campsite for songs around the fire and a picnic with family and friends.
